The Great Cupcake(Potion) Sale of VH37

Recommended Posts

Kay Wickham

REACTION POST

 

One would think that after all of the unfortunate experiences she'd had rushing into things (losing her shoes, her head becoming a pumpkin, breaking a girl's tooth, attacked by a book with fangs) Kay would be deterred from being so impulsive.

 

Perhaps one day those experiences would stack up to enough tragedy to outweigh her desire to eat first and ask questions later... but this was not that day. So, cupcake in hand, she immediately turned an about-face and crammed the whole thing into her gob, pinching the paper sleeve at the bottom so that she wouldn't swallow that, too. She'd learned from experience. Then she chewed, finding solace in the simplicity of the nomnom.

 

Her first thought was that it tasted kind of strange.

 

Her second thought was that it was making her tummy feel all wonky-bonkers.

 

Her third thought was that the boy over there--

 

✧・゚: *✧・゚:* THE BOY OVER THERE *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

 

--was the single most dazzling creature she had ever seen.

 

She gulped hard, losing all sense of time and space and especially the sense of icing still on her nose and upper lip. Her heart was thudding in her chest like she'd just run her morning marathon like three extra times, and for a moment she worried that she was going to be sick. Her stomach was still turning over and over like it had failed a trust fall on a steep incline, and she could feel her face flush.

 

Maybe she was sick. Sick of living in a world where she didn't know what that boy's end-of-day stank smelled like, or how loudly he sneezed, or his actual name maybe even.

 

Kay knew she had to do something, but how do you walk up to someone you don't even know and tell them that they make you sick?

 

The Gryffindor glanced around at the crowd, wondering if this was the right place for such a confrontation. Maybe it needed the right mood? Yet here they were, surrounded by kids turning green or sweating of onion or getting the runs and it wasn't exactly inspiring. In fact, it was downright suspicious.

 

That is when her hero sense kicked in. Kids with mysterious conditions. Cupcakes, consumed. Putting two and two together took but a moment--an eternity of not thinking about that boy--and then she was left with a shocking truth:

 

These cupcakes may look like they were Corelli-Rose, but they were actually Corelli-NO-NOs because they were POISONED.

 

If Kay had still had her cupcake even half-eaten in hand, she would have thrown it down in dramatic realization. Instead, she had it in her belly, which was having a dramatic throw-down of its own over how magnificent that boy looked. His hair, the way he was about to eat a cupcake, his jaw--

 

"No, don't eat that!" Kay cried, her fist connecting with the aforementioned jaw--omg it felt even better than it looked--to prevent it from chomping down on the deceitful dessert.

 

She had given her very best right hook, and saved @Lucas Kettering, the boy she loved, from a cupcake.

Ryszard Althaus-Valerio

When he didn’t face any resistance, Ryszard was a tiny bit suspicious - but he shrugged and simply went off on his way. He stuffed one of the cupcakes in his mouth and—

 

— it took about two seconds, before his eyes landed on @Ezmeralda de la Renta. His best friend. The bestest friend he had ever had.

 

Ryszard didn’t even notice he was hovering slightly above the ground.

Robin Corelli-Rose

Reaction Post!

 

Having lived above a bakery for years, Robin had gotten a taste for cupcakes - he was a cupcake connoisseur now, thanks to his dads' creations. He only ate The Best, which of course included his sister's creations. That's why Robin had no reservations about taking a bite.

 

That's also why Robin got confused when, after a couple moments chewing, he felt an OMINOUS RUMBLING in the bit of his stomach. Very deep down. It felt like things were imploding and bubbling in the bubble-bubble-toil-and-trouble sort of way - or more like, bubble-bubble-TOILET-trouble. "Oh God..." Robin muttered, because it was that kind of rumble. He looked at the half-eaten cupcake in his hand - and noticed that his hand was green.

 

His arm - both arms - apples of his cheeks, the tip of his nose--- Everything!

 

"Oh God," he wailed, dropping the cupcake to the ground and staring at his hands in horror. Was it back? WAS THE DRAGON POX BACK? Unless he was finally turning into a real dragon and the rumbling in his belly was actually the fiery pit of burbling gasses and things that made a dragon spit out flames---

 

His stomach rumbled again.

 

Why was everything happening at once? Was it the cupcake? No, his sister would never... Was it something in the cupcake?

 

Oh God, he was contagious to everyone in the Great Hall.

 

In mounting panic, Robin didn't have time to puzzle this out. He turned and dashed from the Great Hall, while the rumbling grew more and more ominous. He needed to find the Hospital Wing - but first, he needed a bathroom.

 

Desperately.

Dove Lightwood

Dove did not trust food offered by professors nor members of staff at the school. Did she trust food made my her fellow students? Heck no. She much preferred being able to go into the kitchens and prepare her own delicate food without the fear of it being charms. It was a lesson that the first years needed to figure out on their own, for no one was going to tell them as such. 

 

In a rare moment of not wanting to murder someone, Dove strolled past the cupcakes and @Selena Watkins. Her heels echoed around the hall, as she slowed down, though didn't stop. 

 

"Three points to Ravenclaw for teaching the first years not to accept food from strangers." She muttered, barely audible. She ignored the fact some of the students had been older than that as well. She couldn't really give the points for torturing the students, even if that is what she meant.

He was wondering bye and saw cupcakes for sale! He didn't fancy one for himself but thought maybe that Addison his diamond in the rough would love. ''Howdy doodley do! I'm Alvis! I'll take one of the most prettiest ones please!'' he handed over the cash and looked around at the cakes on offer.

Jane was about to eat lunch when she saw them. Cupcakes. Her mouth was watering. She didn't need regular lunch, right? A cupcake would be fine. She really loved cupcakes. Her growling somach lead her to the table where they were for sale and she presented her money.

 

"One, please?"

Molly Stone

Molly knew very well not to trust the food from the dueling chamber, but the Great Hall was a different story. What the hell was she supposed to do if she couldn't trust food from the Great Hall? Starve? Impeccable logic that led her to where she was now, at a table speckled with cupcakes. It was led by a Ravenclaw Molly wasn't particularly fond of, but that didn't have any effect on her desire for desserts. And so, she grinned lazily, tossing some sickles over, grabbing a cupcake and taking a big old bite, teeth sinking into frosting, feeling the sweetness flood her tongue and senses.

Francis Barnes II

Francis wanted to eat one of the cupcakes.

 

Longingly.

 

Desperately.

 

Hungrily.

 

They looked like the treats Lindy used to cook up in the bakery, and Francis had to wonder if the older girl in Ravenclaw robes was a classmate of hers, perhaps even a close friend?

 

The fluffiness of the cake, the precise, colorful swirl of icing atop each confection, the overabundance of rainbow sprinkles!  This bake sale had Lindy written all over it!

 

In addition to having an enormous sweat tooth, Francis also wanted to support his cousin in her culinary endeavors, and was quick to hop in line.  He’d just finished hand-selecting his own cupcake (purple icing with green, flower-shaped sprinkles) when he noticed the people around him acting… well, odd.

 

Dyck was floating several inches off the ground with an armful of cupcakes.  Julian was laughing like a crazy person who was having their toes mercilessly tickled.  Robin looked like he had a bad case of THE CRAMPS and Kay was—

 

Francis dropped the cupcake.

 

He then gasped and looked down at the floor because he dropped the cupcake.

 

It had landed icing-side down. ;-;

 

"You're a bad person!" Francis shouted accusingly at Selena before running off towards Kay.

 

"KAY, YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PUNCH PEOPLE UNLESS YOU'RE REALLY GOOD FRIENDS!  LIKE DYCK AND LESTER!"

@Alvis Anderson is completely safe. He has chosen a delicious and completely normal cupcake.

 

 @Jane Wayne Congratulations! Your cupcake contains Felix Felicis. You will be incredibly lucky for the rest of the evening.

 

 @Molly Stone You are about to become very confused. This will last the entire week unless an antidote is found.

 

@Francis Barnes II I am not D:

Jane thanked the student for the cupcake and wasted no time eating it. It was everything she had hoped it would be. Her eyes closed in bliss as she let the deliciousness seep into her bones. She felt...wonderful. 

 

She had a thought. Ivan had given her a lot of chocolate on the train. Ahe hadn't wanted it, but it was the thought that mattered, she decided. She would get a cupcake for her friend Ivan, that sounded like a great idea! She offered some money to the student selling cupcakes once more. 

 

"These are wonderful! One more for my friend, please?" She asked.

Alvis so very pleased to have a prezzie to give to his Diamond, he wasn't going to eat it himself as the food in the great hall was far more then what Alvis could eat and he wanted to try and impress the head girl. ''Thanx so much! I'm sure Addison will love this!'' he said as he took the cake and began in search of Addison, completely a loss as to what he might be holding in his hands, a ticking time bomb?

Fletcher Barrow

If Fletcher had been a Ravenclaw he might have questioned why Selena Watkins was selling cupcakes in the Great Hall. Couldn’t they all just go down to the kitchens and ask the house elves to make them some cupcakes for free? Fletch was sure the house elves would be more than happy to do so, but he was also in fact not a Ravenclaw and so analytical thinking patterns weren’t exactly his forte.

 

Besides, Selena was his classmate and one of Seeley’s friends, and Fletcher figured it couldn’t hurt to help her out by throwing a few sickles her way. Sure, some people were acting a bit strangely after biting into the cupcakes but Fletch wasn’t too worried. He always liked a gamble anyway.

Bitsy Pollen

“It’s sticky,” Bitsy noted. Oblivious (as of yet) to the mayhem that was looming in her immediate sphere—the bulk of her friends beelining straight (unknowing) into their gastronomical tragedies, Bitsy was equally unconscious to how she might join them. She ate her cupcake in small, practiced bites, cutting the sweet up into squares with her fork (like a crazy person, Bitsy; you’re eating like a crazy person). Each was savoured, however. That icing sugar was that little extra too sweet, but she enjoy this, too: this defiance to what she was allowed.

There were things that even Jacqueline wouldn't be able to miss even if she were suddenly impaired of vision and money was one of them. The sight of the shiny coins was enough to get her interested in the crowd but as she didn't have money she accidentally knocked into some students and when she made it through with twenty-seven seemingly sincere apologies, she had a few galleons in her possession. 

"I want twelve!" 


Or one. 

She took one but she wanted twelve.

Seeley Pichardo

"Thanks Lena!" Seeley grinned and handed over the few coins before picking up the cupcake and taking a few steps to the side as more people flooded up to the table to purchase some of her friends sweets.  She tossed a thumbs up in her @Selena Watkins direction before unwrapping the treat and biting right in.  

 

Delicious.  

 

"Oh! Fletch!" She grinned and chewed as saw her friend approach.  "You gotta try one of these!"  Wait... what was she eating again?  Where had it come from?

Mmm cupcakes. Whether these were special or not they definitely tasted worth the sickles he had shelled out for one. After a couple of bites Fletcher realized that he felt totally fine. Maybe the baked goods were just normal cupcakes after all.

 

Fletcher’s gaze remained on his food until he heard his name called. His eyes flicked up to see who had called him and in that moment he stopped eating. In fact, he completely forgot about the delicious cupcake and its existence and simply let it fall into the table.

 

“H-hey...Seels,” the Slytherin greeted his friend shyly. The warm, tingly feeling washing over his body was new and strange, but he didn’t question. All he knew was that Seeley Pichardo was the most beautiful person he had ever laid eyes on. She was a blessing to his vision. An absolute goddess.

 

“You...you look amazing.” Fletcher managed to get the words out to the Hufflepuff while his face turned a bright shade of red. He had to marry this girl someday. Maybe soon.

Kieran should have known better. LIKE REALLY. FOR REAL. He was all for the free things. Free food though from anyone in this school? Especially if it involved his own yearmates (or Professors cause lets be honest)? Yeah. That should have been a no go. But whatever. He wanted a cupcake. And the kitchens seemed so far away.

 

"What flavors are they?" Like that would stop him from eating the whole thing.
